Happy Monday my friends and welcome to my Monday Blog! A special welcome goes to all you new comers around the World, who are here for the very first time! I’m so grateful to all of you and hope when possible you’ll put me on your calendar for every Monday. I make an extra effort not to preach to you; however, sometimes I may get a little out of control and head up that path…trust me though, there’s always a good reason if you read between the lines.
I used to be somewhat rebellious. You know the type…”I can do anything if I really want to”…the only problem with that attitude is that it’s a bit singular and may not work in all situations. Also that style may give the impression that one doesn’t need anyone else. Actually I chased peace for a long time and then found it in my brokenness. That’s when I truly started listening to God, and in case we think God’s mighty Hand is not in everything, well, think again!
Helpless, weary, sick, in pain, broken hearted…LOST, No matter what we’re dealing with or even why, God’s mighty Hand is smack dab in the middle of every crisis we face! He loves us; he doesn’t want us to suffer; He even sent His only begotten son to suffer for us! What more can He do for us to prove His undying love for us?
If you don’t know God, but want to know Him, Church is always a great place to start. My pastor, Rev. Bryant Wright, always reminds us that church is not a Hotel for Saints, rather a Hospital for Sinners. Frankly, I shudder to think where I might be right now, had I not had the opportunity to regularly attend church at a very young age. When I grew up and could make my own decisions, I knew full-well where my faith, heart and devotion belonged, and Church was my way of witnessing for my Savior, Jesus Christ. That was my personal way of saying “Thank you, God, for everything, especially for Jesus!!”
You know, I believe the hardest thing about believing in “the invisible” is believing in the invisible. It’s not a trick. It’s not a joke. Believing in something/anything we cannot see, takes FAITH. How much faith?
“Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move.” – Matthew 17:20
Without faith, is to be without God. Without God is to be without Eternity with God. Without Eternity with God is to spend Eternity in Hell.
My prayer for all of us this week is that as Christians we will never doubt God and we’ll embrace our faith and share our love for God with someone who doesn’t know Him as we do. Amen!
GOD is Good! GOD is Great!! Always!!!
I love you,
